The Schwalbe Pro One has proven to be the benchmark in tubeless time trial tires.
The Pro One TT TLE is for the rider out to win; victorious for the 2018 IRONMAN Hawaii. The rolling resistance of this tire is ultra-low, allowing this tire to be the world's lightest tubeless tire yet.
The latest Souplesse Carcass construction integrates with Tubeless Easy technology flawlessly. The ADDIX Race Single Compound allows maximum speeds with precise control and safety in every situation.
The Pro One TT TLE features a classic skin with beige sidewalls.

No bike tire is perfect, but between the Continental 5000 and the Schwalbe Pro One, I've had more comfortable ride over varying terrain and more puncture protection with the Pro One's. Price also seems to favor the Pro One's through different retailers. I use these on my road and commute bike.
I ride 28 mm tubeless with Stan's sealant, and recently Stan's Race Sealant. I've got 350 miles on them and have not sustained a puncture yet, to include rough pavement and some gravel roads in MD, and racing the Tour of the Battenkills in upstate NY, which has 20 to 25 miles of dirt & gravel roads, steep ascents and fast descents. One paved road crossing there included two strips of pavement that had been cut out leaving sharp edges - several clincher riders tried to jump them and sustained pinch flats, but I rolled right over and kept going. It may help that I use Silca's tire pressure calculator site and don't over-inflate. I'm around 200 lbs and ran 78/80 psi at the Battenkills.
This is one of the fastest tubeless tires on the market, and the fastest that comes in 28mm. Due to the lightweight construction and thin casing, it's also very supple for a tubeless tire. Just be aware that the tread cap is terrifyingly thin, and thus prone to puncturing. If you skid your rear tire even once, you might just wear it down to the casing. On my first road ride after installation, I experienced a puncture. The tire went from 85psi to 55psi before sealing and I actually didn't notice until after the ride.
Mounting the tire on a pair of ENVE SES 5.6 DIsc wheels was easy. The tires went on without the use of levers. Inflating the tires did require the use of an AirShot, which is interesting because the regular Pro Ones did not need it.
After 2 months of use, I can say the tires feel great. Smooth, fast, and grippy. I agree with the other reviewer that the bead is very difficult to remove, but this will vary by rim. I am running Zipp 303s, and taking them off the rims isn't too hard but getting them on is one of the most difficult bead/rim combos I have ever struggled through. My main complaint is that the rear has had 2 punctures too large for sealant. I am considering switching to a more durable tire in winter and going back to the Schwalbes in the spring.
If you want a fast tire to race on, and the course has been swept of the sharp bits, this is the tire for you.
If you want an everyday tire that is reliable and seals flats, maybe not so much.
I have had 4 flats in 1100 miles. Plugs have not worked for either my front or rear tires, the air and latex pour out even from small holes. I gave up and put in tubes and still got two flats.
Conclusion: Not a very robust tire.
You will need a compressor to set this tire. Once tire is seated it will be impossible to remove tire is so tight I gave up and if need to remove will cut the tire off. I have a enve rim with gorilla tape.
